Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus


Prosciutto-wrapped asparagus is an easy way to make an elegant side dish or appetizer that’s ready in less than thirty minutes. It’s simple enough for weeknight dinners and yet sophisticated enough for Easter, Mother’s Day, Showers, or cocktail parties.



1 tablespoon olive oil

16 spears fresh asparagus, trimmed (I used medium stalks)

16 slices prosciutto

½ fresh lemon


Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.

Drizzle the olive oil on the asparagus spears and roll the spears around to completely coat the vegetables on all sides.

Wrap one slice of prosciutto around each spear of asparagus in a spiral pattern. Gently tug the prosciutto as you wrap it around the asparagus to make it tight. Wrap in a single layer. Snip any excess prosciutto off and save for another use.

Arrange the wrapped asparagus on the prepared baking sheet.

Bake for 5 minutes in the preheated oven.

Turn the asparagus and continue to bake for another 5 minutes or until the asparagus is tender and the prosciutto is crisp.

Squeeze the lemon over the hot asparagus.

Serve hot.
